“Hey guys, on the first day of our holiday break I tested positive for Covid. I was vaccinated and boostered which made me lucky enough to only have mild symptoms,” Jimmy wrote on Instagram.

He continued, “Thank you to the doctors and nurses who work so hard around the clock to get everyone vaxxed. Thank you to NBC for taking the testing protocols so seriously and doing a great job – and also thanks for putting me in the ‘What ‘chu talkin’ about Willis?’ isolation room when they told me the news.”

Reese Witherspoon commented on the post, “Hope you had a speedy recovery!”

Jimmy responded, “@reesewitherspoon Thank you!! Back to 100%!”

Another talk show host just tested positive for the virus and missed the first day back for her show.
